Mississippi River Duck Hunting Guide
Captain Jeremy Schreiner is "Your Go To Guide" for LAKE PEPIN HUNTS!

Specializing in CANVASBACK Hunts!!!

Mississippi River Duck Hunting	"WE FIND and PUT YOU on the BIRDS!"

Typical Harvest ... 400 - 600 Birds a Season!!!
Captain Jer was on the water scouting or hunting all but a hand full of the 60 day season to ensure the highest odds of quality shoots for all clients.

Addicted River Guiding is different than other guide services because we have the Mississippi River Pool 4 & Pool 5 and the option of conducting Layout Boat Hunts on Lake Pepin.

• Quality Gear and a Very Experienced Guide
• Backwater Heated Boat Huntsin 20ft Go Devil Hunting Boat
• Backwater Layout Blind Hunts in Beavertail Final Attack Boats, Sea Ark 2072 Tender Boat, Tunnel Hull with Vertical Jack Plate
• Open Water Layout Hunts in Mighty Layout Boys Boats, Sea Ark 2072 Tender Boat

   Addicted River Guiding is very fortunate to have all three of these completely separate options to offer our hunters. There are times when there is truly only one method that will produce.

We are Truly the Most Versatile Waterfowl Guide Service Around!!!

   Last year we harvested BWT, GWT, Wood Ducks, Mallards, Black Ducks, Pintails, Wigeon, Gadwall, Spooners, Canada Geese, Canvasbacks, Ringbill, Greater Scaup, Lesser Scaup, Bufflehead, Red Head, Goldeneye, Hooded Merganser, American Mergansers and Common Merganser. There are times throughout the season where most speciess are abundant. There is always a peak migration and we study these year to year to determine average dates for each species. Very simple to increase your odds and create a higher percentage!

   We typically start the season with Green Wings, Blue Wings and Wood Ducks, with a few mallards. This Early Season (Season #1) offers fast action, generally warm weather, good numbers and new young birds. Then Through the season there are different phases and peak migrations which I will list as follows.

• Phase # 1: A first push of PUDDLE DUCKS
   This is generally Mid October around our 2nd Season opener. Generally killing more Mallards, Wigeon, Gadwall along with some Pintail and Black Ducks.

• Phase # 2: A first push of DIVER DUCKS
   This generally includes strong numbers of Canvasbacks, Redheads, Ring Bills and a few Bills. The fast and furious diver hunting action can be strong for three weeks. Yet Killing all of these specie through the rest of the year, and generally enough around to target the specie.

• Phase # 3: The Late Season Divers
   Goldeneye, Blue Bill and Bufflehead mostly with all other Hearty Puddlers and Divers showing up also.

   These are typical, traditional calendar order for waterfowl. Mother Nature and Gods Creatures are uncontrollable and we never know exactly, but every year it is pretty darn close though. Remember once the species show up, we generally kill most of them until the end of season except for the first season birds (Teal and Woodies). Mallard populations go up and down throughout the season. Great shoots early and great shoots late. That is the beautiful part of the river you could request a Puddle Duck hunt in the timber and we can kill a couple Bull Cans. Most hunts are set up to kill both Puds and Divers. First step is to choose when you want to come and hunt, considering possible temperatures and weather, species targeted etc. Then we decide which method suites you. My tender boat is set up to hunt 4 Beavertail Layouts in the backwaters at anytime through the season. There are situations where the low profile boats dominate, especially in low cover and short vegetation. At times the heated boat is best, comfortable dry, warm breakfast etc. The layouts are a bit more hardcore hunting weather backwater layouts or open water layouts.

   Which brings us to the late season diver hunts on Lake Pepin starting in early November. These are conducted the same as a Great Lakes Hunt. Very unique, different and fun!! We have options and believe me options are your friend in hunting any waterfowl, the birds move constantly and so must we and be smart in what method of attack we use to kill them.
